Lyrics

Ladies, you're damn right
You can't read a man's mind
We're living in two tribes
And heading for war
Well, nobody's perfect
We all gotta work it
But fellas, we're worth it
So don't break the law

Your call's late, big mistake
You gotta hang about in limbo for as long as I take
Next time, read my mind
And I'll be good to you
We're gift-wrapped kitty Kats,
We're only turning into tigers when we gotta fight back
Let's go, Eskimo
Out into the blue....

Come take my hand, understand that you can,
You're my man & I need you tonight

Come make my dreams
Honey, hard as it seems
Loving me is as easy as pie (Aii)

I'm just a Love Machine
Feeding my fantasy
Give me a kiss or three & I'm fine
I need a squeeze a day
'Stead of this negligee
What will the neighbours say this time


I've been going crazy while you sleep
Searching for a language that the 2 of us can speak
So, Mr. prehistoric make your wheel
& I'll breathe underwater cos I like the way it feels

Your call's late, big mistake
You gotta hang about in limbo for as long as I take
Next time, read my mind
And I'll be good to you

We're gift-wrapped kitty Kats,
We're only turning into tigers when we gotta fight back
Let's go, Eskimo
Out into the blue....

Come take my hand, understand that you can,
You're my man & I need you tonight
Come make my dreams
Honey, hard as it seems
Loving me is as easy as pie

I'm just a Love Machine
Feeding my fantasy
Give me a kiss or three & I'm fine
I need a squeeze a day
'Stead of this negligee
What will the neighbours say this time?

Oh, it's very new
Can anybody tell me what to do
Oh, this feeling's very strange
Can anybody tell me what's your game

(Oh) A little education
(Oh) to give you motivation
(Oh) We'll turn the situation round
(Oh) Cos I don't wanna change ya
(Oh) Making you a stranger
(Oh) I'll only re-arrange ya for now

(Oh) I'm just a Love Machine
(Oh, to give you motivation
(Oh) I'm just a Love Machine

(Oh) I'm just a love machine
(Oh, to give you motivation
(Oh) I'm just a Love Machine

(Ooh, ooh, ooh)
